Day 9: Your first anime crush

My first anime crush was back in the days before I even knew what anime was, watching Pokémon. I don’t quite know why, as he’s definitely not my type of character now, but I really loved James when I was younger!

If we count Pokémon as my first anime, then my first anime crush when I consciouly knew what anime was came about during my third anime, Attack on Titan. Levi is definitely my type of character, and probably the reason I like most characters I do like. Whilst I don’t like James much, I still love Levi and he’s probably one of my favourite Attack on Titan characters.

30 Days of: Anime, Day 7

Day 7: Which character would you want to be your workout buddy?

This one was pretty tough because I have watched a lot of sports anime in my time, and it goes without saying that any of the characters would be prime workout buddies.

I’ve gone for a double pick here, firstly choosing Aida Riko from Kuroko No Basuke. I feel like her scan ability would be really helpful in order to bring out the best in my workouts and target key areas!

For the same reason, I’m also going for Matsuoko Gou from Free! Gou’s love of muscles and experience in putting together training plans would really come in handy!

Challenges

2020 Challenges: March Recap

You’d think that being housebound would mean I’d be powering through these challenges…. think again. Some of the challenges are completely unchanged, in fact, it’s only the anime one I’ve managed to make any headway on.

Watch 40 anime

March end total: 7

Winter seasonal shows are starting to wrap up now. Naturally I’m behind, but I’ve managed to finish a couple of shows in March; Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It and The Case Files of Jeweler Richard. My aim is to be totally up to date with all my shows by the end of this week, so April should see a hefty jump in these numbers!

Watch 40 movies in the cinema

March end total: 5

Now we’re not allowed to leave the house, and every movie ever is being delayed, I’m anticipating that I probably won’t hit this target by the end of the year. At least this one is not my fault!

Platinum 20 games

March end total: 1

Read 15 books

March end total: 0

Finish 100 best movies

March end total: 2

Finish Naruto

March end total: 3 episodes

30 Days Of: Anime, Days 5 and 6

Day 5: An anime you’re ashamed you enjoy

Sorry to be super boring, but there’s nothing I’m really ashamed about. I made it a point to not be ashamed about anything I enjoy after spending much of my teenage years feeling the same.

Day 6: Character you would like to cosplay

Oh boy…. that’s kind of a loaded question. I have so many cosplay plans from anime. I want to cosplay from every Ghibli movie, for a start. So far I’ve only done Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle, so I’ve got a long way to go on that.

Other cosplans that I had for this year were Pixie-Bob from Boku No Hero Academia, Ray from The Promised Neverland, and Izumi from Love Stage, but who knows if I’m going to be able to leave the house this year to be able to do them!

Day 4: Which character(s) would you want as a best friend?

After much deliberation, my chosen anime bestie is Tachibana Makoto from Free!. Makoto proves time and time again over the course of all Free! series that he’s the sweetest, kindest, and most genuinely caring out of all of the Free! boys, and in fact probably in any anime I’ve watched. He clearly loves his friends, and as the designated mum friend is always making sure Haru remains a semi-normal functioning human.

He’s also got backstroke for days.

Day 3: Favourite Anime OP

I was wracking my brain over this one and even enlisted the help of Chelsie (whose blog you should check out here!), and somehow this theme completed evaded us until it came to me in a flash of inspiration, and it was so obvious once I thought of it.

The answer for the greatest anime OP of all time is of course the Ouran High School Host Club OP. Ouran is actually one of the few anime I’ve watched the dub of, so I’ve gone for the dubbed OP, but the Japanese version slaps too!
